Mark Summerfield <mark at qtrac.eu> added the comment:

I was wrong about r"(?<name>.*)". It is valid in the new engine. And the PyPI docs do say so immediately _following_ the example.

I've tried all the examples in "Programming in Python 3 second edition" using "import regex as re" and they all worked.
